yup ich and then you have the problem of it needing like 125 gallons. atleast 55 by itself ok but back to ich raise the temp to 86 degrees SLOWLY and add some API aquarium salt 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons

no bc it'll spread if it hasnt to the other fish so treat the whole tank. and yes bc they get big and i see you have fish that also need 55 gallons so you'll need the 125 or upgrade to a 55 and get rid of the bala

Well I put him in the old tank I'll have to wait and see if it spreads but I'll probably do the treatment anyways thanks for the advice and I'll probably be looking for a bigger tank soon
